BIRD Awards


 Please stay tuned for the call in September 2020!

To encourage bioinformaticists in India who have had made outstanding contributions in the area of Bioinformatics and Functional Genomics, we have initiated the Bioclues Innovation, Research and Development (BIRD) awards in 2011. 

  • Nominations are invited for outstanding contributions in the area of Functional Genomics and Bioinformatics. This award is meant not just for academicians but also for scientists who have shown exemplary excellence in the field of Bioinformatics. While scientists who have been working for not-for-profit organizations will be given importance, the ones who are working for commercial organisations are no less exception if the research they have carried out has been widely honoured and have made longstanding contributions.  The awardee would receive a plaque and a citation with certificate. The awardee would further be invited to join the core/rep team of Bioclues society.
